AbstractTests carried out in a two-storey energy-efficient test house to determine the relation between air contaminant levels from gas stove operating and air infiltration rate are reported. Also, tests conducted with the range hood operating at various exhaust rates are reported. The calculated diurnal profile of CO generated from a typical cooking schedule indicated that progressive build-up of combustion products can occur at low house air infiltration rate.
